If you've never been, Tour de Fat is one of the must-attend events of the summer. Ridiculous fun and raises a ton of money for MORC (Minnesota Off-Road Cyclists--the people responsible for the extensive mountain bike system in the cities) and the Greenway Coalition.

As a forewarning, 50%+ of the people in attendance will be in a costume. Dig out last year's Halloween digs and enjoy yourself.

Bike Parade starts at 11am, registration ($5 donation to aforementioned groups) starts at 10am.
